A popular tourist stop for anyone visiting the historic seaside city of Baltimore, the inner harbor area was once an industrial shipping seaport with old warehouses and cranes dotting the landscape.
One early Fall morning (2011) as the trees had began their annual change toward more robust colors, I grabbed this shot in Baltimore's Federal Hill section, which borders the inner harbor. It's where I shot this sunrise and this "under the gun" view. This time I was nearby and decided to catch some of the morning light, although it was well past sunrise. Along the left edge of this image (midway) you can see the historic Domino Sugar plant and it's iconic neon sign. Just below that there is what looks like a huge birds nest toward the foreground. It's actually a creative way to get a little privacy on a balcony. :-) Ahh, my historic hometown of Baltimore, it's more than just "The Wire", this nation's history runs deep here. Anyhow, hope you enjoy today's image.
Thanks for visiting!
Happy Monday everyone, hope you had a great weekend. Today's image comes from atop Federal Hill, a place rich in history. It received it's name in 1789 following the actual ratification of the U S (Federal) Constitution. The hill once served as an observation point with it's great view of the harbor and the Patapsco River, an inlet of the Chesapeake bay. It was also once occupied by Union troops during the Civil War, as evidenced by the historic cannons stationed around it's perimeter. Below we look northward across Baltimore's inner harbor.

Until next time... have a great day! :-)
